NORWICH, Vt. (WCAX) Another Vermont connection to a clown sex scandal.
This follows reports that Barry Lubin, also known as "Grandma the Clown," sexually abused a victim he first met while she was touring with Circus Smirkus, which is based in Greensboro, Vermont. Lubin says the allegations are true and he apologized.
Friday afternoon, the town of Norwich released a statement because they say Lubin taught children at their annual circus camp. The town says it has "no reason" to suspect Lubin did anything other than teach circus techniques and no one complained. But they do not plan to hire him again and urge anyone to come to police if they experienced anything inappropriate.
